Skoda comes up with matte edition of Rapid

Skoda Auto has introduced a new matte edition of Rapid in the country. It will be available in an exclusive carbon steel matte colour which adds to the style statement, said a press release.

The new edition will be powered by 1.0 L TSI engine and will be available in both automatic and manual transmissions.

The matte edition, said the release, sports many new features which make the car distinctive and add dynamism to the Rapid line-up.

The new glossy black radiator grille and spoiler in the front coupled with the carbon steel matte colour enhance the emotive design. The glossy black door handle is exclusively for the matte edition and uplifts the side profile of the car. In addition, the black body side moulding also accentuates the side profile.

At the rear, the addition of the rear diffusor, glossy black tailgate spoiler and the black trunk lip garnish gives a sporty avatar to the car. The new edition of Rapid comes with all-black alloy wheels making it a complete head-turner from the outside, added the release.

Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India, said, “Since its launch, the Rapid has had an incredible success journey in India. With more than 1,00,000 customers, Rapid has seen great resonance with auto enthusiasts across the country. Taking the success story further, we are thrilled to introduce the Rapid matte edition in India. With this addition, the Rapid portfolio expands further to reach newer customers. With its distinctive style and extensive feature list, I am confident that this product will see great demand.”
